steve schmidt, senior adviser on the mccain '08 campaign and joy reid, nbc contributor. this latest video about him wanting to send president obama as he puts it back to kenya was pulled out today. it's been around. they highlighted it. and then the senator put out a statement saying he doesn't -- his father doesn't speak for him. >> it's so precious when the guy whose son was born in canada does birther jokes. that's adorable. it highlights without the media officially there kind of the way conservatives are talking amongst themselves. and that really is the problem. the problem is even with the 47% video, this was mitt romney being asked by somebody in the audience how can we get those moochers to stop taking our tax money and living on the dole. he answered that question with 47%. the conversations taking place inside the conservative base shows ugliness outwardly. >> steve schmidt, the other thing in that video is a strong sense of superiority. we are superior people to the other people we're talking about, be it the president of the united states or anyone that votes for him. >
and publisher katarina and washington editor-at-large for the atlantic steve clemens. i dare say there's a lot of nuance here. i asked you guys when you sat down here, what is an unforced error. it seems what is happening now is a series of unforced errors. could the president not have gone out years ago, months ago and said, look, for the majority of americans, your plans aren't going to change. for some americans your plans will change but they are going to get better and possibly even cheaper, was that not politically possible? >> a mislead. >> what he was was dumb and illogical. he was also telling people at the exact same time that the law would require their plans to get better. in other words, different. >> right. >> so you can't in one breath say you will have the same plan and in the next breath say you'll have a different plan. in a better plan both things can't be true. they will argue a lot of people will lose these plans. they will say these plans were crappy anyway. they had terribly high deductibles. low monthly cost misleading because of the deductible. didn't cover a lot of st
the market is looking to recover from a pretty disappointing halloween,dices c the red. steve sedgwick live for us in london. steve, good morning. >> hello there. yeah, the market had a very good month in october. s&p up over 23% for the year, up over 4% in the month of october. so, yes, they gave back a bit of ground, but it wasn't a great fright. elsewhere really interesting stories. 23 million homes plus, 47 million americans plus, are actually recipients of food stamps and they will get a benefit cut today. it will be around about 36 bucks out of the 275 monthly benefit per household which will be cut, but there is a multiplier effect. which means it has a two to one effect in many cases. so if you lose $5 billion worth of benefits, that can have a $10 billion effect on the u.s. economy. so real concerns there about what those benefit cuts mean across the united states. elsewhere, a bit of good news for people who have been reluctant up until now to put money toward flexible spending arguments for health care. basically use it or lose it was the old mantra. now it seems the irs and trea
incorporated. and steve roeper is the president of roeper insurance and financial insurances. great to see both of you. >> thank you. >> good morning. >> tom, let me start with you and give you the first scenario. i am a company and i have less than 50 employees, i don't have to provide insurance, but i would like to. i'm not currently providing it. what do i do? >> well, my first recommendation to any one of those small businesses across the country is don't go to healthcare.gov first. the technical aspects are uncertain at best. the best approach for any small business or individual is find a local agent or broker that can help them navigate through the challenges of the health care system and help them find the most economic solution for their employees and their dependents, but even more importantly, helping to make sure whatever physician or provider they have for their health care is part of their network. >> okay, so steve, this doesn't sound so different than what i would have done last year if i were a small business under 50 people and wanted to provide insurance for my employees. >>
you are saying. >> and it wasn't steve rattner, we talked about this. it wasn't just this one ad. they went to ohio for a year and said mitt romney was a disgusting, filthy capitalist pig. it was on bain capital. they were clear. they told john heilemann, we have to destroy mitt romney. they went to ohio and they destroyed him as human being saying he was a horrible, filthy capitalist and yesterday, barack obama is going to massachusetts saying he's a role model. which is it? >> the other thing they did during the campaign is said mitt romney was responsible, attacking the health plan he put in place and accused him of being a hypocrite about that. i think the fact is, the massachusetts plan is a plan that worked. it is a model for our plan. we can talk about it later today. so, the president is latching himself on to that plan. i guess you are not happy he's doing that. >> no, he can. either mitt romney is a horrible human being or a role model for america, which is it? >> the health plan is a role model. >> there's really no answer. >> what is more embarrassing to you, how it r
to young adults on the healthcare.gov website. i want to bring in today's agenda panel. lee fang, steve bennen and dafna linzer, the managing editor of msnbc.com. gang, it's good to have you here. i want to start out with house speaker john boehner. he weighed in on this just a short time ago and said there was no way to fix this disaster. i want to play a portion. take a look. >> this is government-run health care. because virtually every policy that is sold, has to be approved by the government. that's why you've got 1.5 million americans who are already gotten these notices that they're going to lose their health coverage because it doesn't meet the minimum standard. >> all right. so insurance regulation is basically what he's talking about here. i think as a country we can basically say that insurance regulation has sucked as we get to this point. why are republicans, steve, holding hearings when they don't want this website to work? and should the administration capitalize on that? because we had congressman mcdermott there in the hearing earlier talking about medicare part d eight
as far as you can. outside of calling from being quartered, there's nothing you can do. congressman steve stockman, a tea party extremist has sent a book to every member of the house saying -- >> let's not call these books. they're pamphlets put out by some -- >> but it's written by a birther. that's the other thing. it's written by a birther who works for world net daily which is a birther publication website. and you don't see john boehner and the republican party saying, hey, cut this crap out. >> ron, do you think there's any sense of self-doubt dare i raise the issue with the right wing, when they're talking about this guy from canada. fair enough he's natural born in my opinion. born to an american mother. and where's donald trump been? where's the birthers? how have they embraced this guy who everybody knows was born in canada. fair enough, but the same thing -- what are they? just living in this crazy split screen world where they trash a democrat or a black guy for the same thing you worship another guy? >> strange as it seems, yes. yes they do live in that split screen universe.
posting fwans fgains day. steve sedgwick live for us in london. i worked at cnbc for six years. i remember '07, we hit these new highs. doesn't seem like we're getting this sort of enthusiasm for it. so what's the feeling like and why? >> i'll tell you one reason why. because too many people haven't been invested in this rightly. we've had 24% to the up side on the s&p so far this year and they're thinking i'm worried, i better own some of it or my investors will say why did i miss out. but as you say, the enthusiasm is tempered. for instance only 52.5% of companies reporting in this earnings season are actually beating expectations on revenue. on revenue itself, sales only about half are beating expectations. so the numbers in sales are pretty average. data is not that great. but everyone is thinking no tapering and so moving to the the up side. >> what about s.a.c. settlement? >> right. this investigation has been going on pretty much the whole time you were at cnbc almost. the best part of seven years under some form of investigation. according to reuters, the wall street journal saying

by the "atlantic's" steve clemens. steve, what can you tell us? >> well, i just happened to come from a meeting with a senior administration official who happened to state that this was an israeli attack. and added the other interesting pee pieces of this, which we hadn't heard before, part of the systems were russian in origin. that's a complicating factor. of course, we have very critical weapons inspections and chemical weapons destruction efforts under way. key meetings tomorrow. so the timing is odd. the attack is consistent with how israel has tracked weapons systems before that it thought would reach hezbollah. and so speculating it looks as if israel was worried the shipment of these systems was imminent and took action. >> why now? particularly on a day when we've had encouraging news about the dismantling of syria's chemical weapons. >> well, it does show that israel continues to be ferociously focused on its core interests in a way that do not necessarily play nicely with other coordinated efforts with allies. and that's probably a good way of saying they are not worried. they're not
from new york. i'm chris hayes. and i'm dressed this halloween as steve kornacki. we've got lots of politics tonight, starting at the white house, where you might have noticed, it's been something of a rough couple of weeks for the president. with the rocky rollout of his signature health reform law dominating the news, the political toll is real and it is getting worse. and nowhere is the damage more apparent than in the latest polling from nbc news, where president obama's approval rating has fallen to an all-time low of 42%. that is a five-point drop from just earlier this month. these numbers, as bad as they are, don't necessarily exist in a vacuum. there's a lot more complexity to the current political environment, which in many ways is the story of american politics in the tea party era. >> let's talk about the president. >> between syria, between the shutdown, between obama care, how are his approval numbers stacking up? >> record lows. >> the president's approval rating dropped five points. >> at an all-time low. >> is this more than just the second-term curse? >> if he g

, steve, was the fact that we had merged the non-group market with the individual market to try to spread out risks. what does the federal plan do? well, it reduces the number of rating factors we can use to evaluate risk for that pool. it's undermine wack we want to do. in fact, we have pleaded with our governor, governor patrick has asked the federal government, give us a waiver so that we can evaluate and price risk fairly and yet we now are going to be forced to use 4 rating factors as opposed to 106789 that's one of the major points of distinction here, massachusetts plan worked because it was designed for pennsylvania. we had expertise, for instance, in pricing risks. we had growth markets in medical devices. yet, when we look at what's happening at the federal level which claims to be mirrored on what we did in massachusetts, it's impeding our ability to carry out the plan we set out that has worked so successfully. >> i know governor patrick has a different version. congressman holt wants to ask you a question. >> senator, thanks for taking time away from the ducks this morning to
to turn to democratic senator steve beshear, republican governor john kasich in neighboring ohio. i wanted to take this out of washington because in kentucky you set up your own health care exchange. in ohio, governor kasich, you declined to do so until the federal government comes in to do that. let me start with you. the president says there is no excuse for this terrible rollout for obama care through the website. are you as frustrated with how all of this has started? governor kasich? >> is that to me? >> yes. >> yeah. well, look, david, the problem is obama care doesn't control costs. secondly, it's going to drive up the costs for the vast majority of ohioans. it threatens business to grow beyond 50 employees, and frankly, what i think has to concern everybody, this economy is stalled and people don't know what the future is going to bring. and when people are uncertain about the future, they sit on their wallets, and that's why we're not seeing the kind of economic growth that we need to see that's so vital to create new jobs here in the state of ohio. >> that's the argument against
joined steve king, congressman from iowa, for his annual pheasant hunt. on saturday the two got dressed up in their finest hunting gear and proceeded to hunt with a gaggle of reporters. of course, they were following every move. what is this? i don't care if it's a side by side, or an over and under. you don't hold the gun over your shoulder, okay? you hold it down and break it down. that's just hunting etiquette for people around you so you don't shoot anybody. that's just kind of how it is. but look at this entourage. you've got walkers out there trying to get the birds up. is that a hunt? no, that's just cornering the birds, is what it is. it's called harvest time. it's not really hunting. not as i see it. and i've been doing it for 35 years. it looked more like a photo op than a pheasant hunt. then something very unusual happened. the subject of dick cheney's hunting accident came up. here's ted cruz, and congressman steve king. early morning conversation. over coffee. making excuses for dick cheney shooting his friend in the face. according to them, it happens. >> yeah, look, it ha
about the launch of iphone. when steve jobs set up the big event. they had something put together with duct tape and wire. it was like -- he insisted on doing it live, steve jobs. he was pushing it through. it looked like the most ridiculous risk taking you could possibly have. so much riding on it. they could not believe it, the engineers, as they sat there in the audience that it worked for the live presentation. i think there was a kind of wishful thinking in this process like you know what, maybe the duct tape will hold and everybody at the lower levels is like i hope, i hope, i hope. it doesn't. now we're in a different stage of the process. now we under the mistakes that were made. now really it's a question of how quickly the administration can regain its competency and come in there and say now we know what the problems are. we can't keep fighting. it's not time to finger point and blame. it's time to be how do we get exchanges up and running efficiently so we get the effects we need from the amount of signups, get the actual system functioning. i think it's -- if i'm in t

, but if there is a democratic president, they're going to find a democratic nominee to the court, steve, as a republican president will. it is a big country. they happen to go to the appellate court is almost besides the point. i so agree with perry. the point is we have inconsistencies, all the appellate courts throughout the country are set by the senate, not messing around with the other circuits, they are focusing on this one. with what seems to be a pretext of case load, which we know fluctuates all the time. >> let's play -- this is john cornyn who is on the senate floor, this was last thursday, he was making the court packing charge, laying out the republican cases, giving you a taste of it. this is john cornyn this week. >> if our friends across the aisle continue to move ahead with the court packing gam but, it will make this chamber even more polarized than it already is. i only hope they choose a different court. if this is why we're committed on this side of the aisle to stopping these nominations to these unneeded judges, and these courts, in this court, and making sure that judges are plac
of that squeamish patriotism for senator cruz. the texas senator was out there pheasant hunting with steve king raising the question of who to root for, the pheasants or the wacko birds? well, this hunting season for votes, who could forget mitt romney's focus on small varmints, not to mention the other prestal candidates who have had to display their guns, suggesting that the senator from alamo country may be ready to run himself for president. i'm hopeful they hae tries it. it would be good to see this man's full-scale program for our country, what he'd do to insure tens of millions of out there for health care, how he'd finance social security and medicare for the long haul, what wars he'd fight, how he'd bring peace and security to our country, how he would work the bipartisan compromises we need to meet the country's challenges. all he does now is stand back from government, take pot shots at pheasants and democrats alike, leaving the real work of running this country to the people dressed for work, instead of posing out there with the nuts and the pheasants. and a quick programming note.
hunted pheasant with steve king and made the battle of president obama's health care law will help the gop in 2014. >> all the washington strategists say in 2014. let's go back to the model of 06, 08, and 12. keep your head down and win races. that's not how you win races. that's based on the idea that if your opponent is here, you want to be to the right so that you can capture every marginal voter up to where they are. the problem is if you do that, you destroy every single reason anyone has to show up. >> don't miss this jab from a guy who may give cruz competition. if he decides to run, this is what former presidential candidate and caucus winner said when asked weather cruz's strategy helped or hurt the gop. >> i would say that in the end he did more harm. i think it was not his objective. the objective was not doing a good job pointing it out. it's one thing to have a goal and the other thing to get to that goal. >> there is a record number of women in the 113th congress. many made their presence known in recent talks to end the government shut down. women had a harder time w

. look at kentucky. governor steve beshear, who is a democrat, is like a man possessed with helping more people get covered. he thinks it's the right thing to do. keep in miami-dade, mind, did i not win in kentucky. but there are a lot of uninsured people in kentucky. and they're signing up. oregon has covered 10% of its uninsured citizens already because of the affordable care act. 10% of the uninsured have already been covered. arkansas. i didn't win that state either. covered almost 14% of its uninsured already. that's already happened. and you've got some republican governors like governor casich of ohio who have put politics aside. and they're expanding medicaid through this law to cover millions of people. unfortunately, there are others that are so locked into the politics of this thing, they won't lift a finger to help their own people. and that's leaving millions of americans uninsured, unnecessarily. that's a shame. because if they put as much energy into making this law work as they do in attacking the law -- americans would be better off. americans would be better off. so tha

. and we didn't know what they had in terms of leverage, steve, over these insurance companies but it's beginning to become very clear. the truth lies with the insurance company sees. >> sure. absolutely. because they're the ones who have got to provide. and it's -- there are all sorts of stories about how remember if you like your doctor, if you like your plan, keep your plan, not true. if you like your hospital, that's not going to be true, as well. because so few are going to be involved. in the meantime, the democrats and the president clearly own this now. the affordable care act is theirs, and that, brian, is why they're trying to blame everybody else. those insurers, they're cut-rate, bad apples. one of the guys -- >> that was bad they said that yesterday. when the president used that term to describe insurance companies in boston, it was essentially game on with a lot of these companies. >> absolutely. it's just like with wall street when he referred to them as fat cats. >> this is just too good. there are such things as standards in the law. so in other words, companies just

members of congress read this website. congressman steve stockman is even handing out the copies of the website's obama impeachment book to every member of congress, bill. >> there's so much going on here. first of all, i've got to say there's a common thread here with this guy down in mississippi and with this nazi talk. this is the tea party mantra. remember the tea party is essentially a racist organization. let's just be honest about that. we saw it from the very beginning with the white face they used to wear at the rallies, with the posters they used to hang around, with the confederate flags that i saw at tea party rallies here on the washington mall, and the source of that tea party movement is that they've never been able to accept barack obama as a legitimate president. the birthers are part of it. they've never been able to accept a black man in the white house. then we see all these different manifestations of it. that's what's going on here. with all these different stories we're telling. it's part of the the same m.o. >> when you look at the fact that conservative r

a number of republicans including steve stockman and senator jim enhoff, michele bachmann has said the house could consider impeachment of president obama. what does this mean for your party looking ahead to 2016. >> it's not helpful today and i've been a campaign manager on several campaigns where i get a phone call from a family member and said, chip, i made some comments we may need to talk about. never helpful when a family member goes way off the talking points and says something like this. i agree with daniellea a little bit. this happens at the end of bush's term when they call him a racist and compared him to adolf hitler. this doesn't help the country and doesn't help the party that's doing it. as we're trying to move past closing down the government, i think we need to stay on the issues as close as possible. >> do you think ted cruz said, dad, we've all been there probably at one thing or another, dad, you went too far or do you think that, frankly, he pretty much agrees with him? >> no, no, i'm sure he's had a conversation with his dad since that and said, dad, it's not

(vo) you are a business pro. maestro of project management. baron of the build-out. you need a permit... to be this awesome. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle... and go. you can even take a full-size or above, and still pay the mid-size price.

for the public to engage it. they spent more on this website, the taxpayers did, than steve jobs spent on creating the iphone. it's been a total collapse. it needs to get running. this entire model is really not a model that's going to work. people don't really want or need to pursue health care to sustain the requirements for funding it unless they have a health issue. the only people right now that are pursuing the options in the website are people who have sickness today. so that's why young people aren't pursuing it. that's why, as we look down the road, i think it's going to be very improbable that the funding component is going to be there. the insurance companies are certainly calling on that now. they're saying the fund willing not be there to allow for it to continue. >> but sir, when you look at the enormity of this project and you look at projects like this in the past the united states has undertaken, these things don't just happen overnight. and i will tell you that i spoke last hour with jonathan gruber, who was the architect not only for romney care but also as a key adv
